Can’t wait!!!” – Bandleader for Tower of Power,Emilio Castillo.

Since their formation in 1968 as the Motowns, Oakland soul band Tower of Power has been known for their legendary five-piece horn section, which led to songs like “So Very Hard To Go” or “What Is Hip?” and over 25 acclaimed albums that have taken the band around the world, several times over.

CAST

CAST TO BRING ‘GREATEST HITS
TOUR’ TO AUSTRALIA IN 2019

Due to unforseen circumstances, 90s Britpop legends CASThave been forced to reschedule their Australian shows.

Originally set to kick off in early February, the trip down under will now be postponed until October, when fans will get the chance to hear the band’s greatest hits, plus other firm crowd favourites.

 We were all dead excited about getting over to Australia and finally performing for our fans down underSaid John Power. I know we’re going to want to make up for lost time and show you all what a great live band we are, so I’m expecting the band to be on fire when we get down there in October!”

Originally formed in 1992 from the ashes of two of the most legendary and lauded guitar bands of all time, The La’sand Shack, Cast released four albums, had ten top 10 singles and were described by Noel Gallagher as ‘a religious experience’ after seeing them live, before disbanding in 2001.

Their 1995 hit record ‘All Change’ became the biggest selling debut album of all timefor Polydor Records, and helped the band secure fan bases around the world. A decade after splitting, the bands original line-up reunited with original producer John Leckie (Stone Roses, Radiohead, The Fall) for their new record ‘Troubled Times’.

 

Tickets to the bands original shows in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth will still be valid, however fans that can no longer attend shows in October will be entitled to a refund.

RITA ORA ADDS KIM PETRAS AND SAMMI CONSTANTINE TO AUSTRALIAN TOUR

With just days until her national Australian tour kicks off, pop sensation Rita Ora adds both Kim Petras and Sammi Constantine as special guest for her Australian shows.

Kim Petras, who was announced to perform at the iconic Sydney Mardi Gras, and just recently sold out her intimate Australian headline shows moments after going on sale, will now join Rita Ora as a special guest at Rita Ora’s Brisbane show at Eatons Hill.

Australia’s own Sammi Constantine, who’s recent singles ‘Watch Yourself’ and ‘Feel Your Body’ have received praise around the country, was also selected by Rita Ora to join her on her capital city run of Australia. Sammi will support Rita Ora at all Australian shows.

Having performed on some of the world’s biggest shows, including ‘Kimmel’ and ‘Ellen’ and the most prestigious stages, from Glastonbury to The White House and even The Vatican, the Kosovo-born, London-raised pop prodigy will land in Australia on March 1 where she’ll showcase hits from her most recent record ‘Phoenix’ as well as fan favourites.

Having become one of the world’s most globally recognised and successful women in pop music since signing to Jay Z’s ‘Roc Nation’ in her teens, Rita Ora has continued her meteoric rise; with hit singles including the Drake-penned “R.I.P”, “Doing It” with Charli XCX, ‘Your Song’, ‘Let You Love Me’ and the Fifty Shades Freed hit ‘For You’ all proving why Rita is one of pop music’s most prominent figures.

ENGELBERT HUMPERDINCK

ON SALE NOW!

Engelbert Humperdinck – the legendary live entertainer – has announced his eagerly anticipated return down under, with ‘The Man I Want To Be Tour,’ set to land in theatres around Australia and New Zealand in March 2019.

Despite growing up extraordinarily shy and the youngest of ten children, Engelbert Humperdinck skyrocketed to fame in 1967, after his single ‘Release Me’ famously blocked The Beatles from a scoring the number one chart position with their new track ‘Penny Lane’. Following on from 50 weeks in the UK charts, the Leicester based entertainer continued his meteoric rise to fame, becoming a sex symbol to women across the globe and delivering one of the most iconic voices of his generation.

With a career spanning almost 50 years, Engelbert amassed 64 Gold albums, 35 Platinum records, four Grammy nominations, a Gold Globe and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He has performed for the Queen four times, for several presidents, alongside music legends like Ray Charles, Tom Jones and Dean Martin and remains one of few musicians alive today, able to have called Elvis a close friend.

Steel Panther

STEEL PANTHER GET BACK TO THEIR SUNSTRIP SET ROOTS, INCLUDE SET OF CLASSIC METAL COVERS

The Sunset Strip’s favourite sons, Steel Panther, are returning to Australia in May 2018 for a WORLD FIRST run of shows! They are returning to Australian shores with their Sunset Strip Live! Tour, which is ALL PANTHER, ALL NIGHT. Two sets – One set of Steel Panther originals, and One set of Classic Covers! Presented by MJR Presents by Arrangement with United Talent Agency, this is Steel Panther‘s third trip out to Australia since 2016 – and it seems like Australia can’t get enough of the raunchy Panther boys from LA!

The Steel Panther boys are coming to Australia to show off how it all started for them – playing venues like The Viper Room in Los Angeles, playing all the best hair metal songs of all time, eventually becoming the Steel Panther everyone loves (well maybe not your Grandma. It kind of depends on what Old Folks’ Home she’s in!).

The tour takes the boys to Melbourne’s The Forum on 16th May, Sydney’s Big Top on the 18th, Brisbane’s Eatons Hill on the 20th and finishing in Perth on the 22nd May at the Astor Theatre. Tickets go on sale Wednesday February 28 at 10:00am Local Time at mjrpresents.com.

Steel Panther have been prolific in their output in the past few years, releasing album “All You Can Eat” in 2014, Live DVD “Live from Lexxi’s Mom’s Garage” in 2016 and album “Lower the Bar” in 2017. Their catalogue of hits is unstoppable, featuring hits like “Death to All But Metal”, “Community Property”, “17 Girls in a Row” and “Poontang Boomerang.”

Last time they visited Australian shores, Blunt Mag’s writer Luke Sutton said that..

.”…if the decade of neon was anything like Steel Panther make it out to be, then it was one hell of a time. [Steel Panther] have made a pretty solid name for themselves Down Under: their trips are all but annual at this point, with every passing crowd growing vaster, louder, and itchier.”

Don’t miss the raucous, irreverent, all-out hair metal assault on your senses (and probably your genitals) that is Steel Panther’s “Sunset Strip Live” tour this May in Australia!

 

Jeremy Loops

South Africa’s biggest contemporary music export Jeremy Loops announces his return to Australia and New Zealand today following on from his successful visit in 2016.

Becoming a hit outside of his homeland, Jeremy’s debut album Trading Change resulted in a 30,000-ticket tour across the UK and Europe as well as a massive European tour with Twenty One Pilots.  His near-sellout tour of Australia in 2016 cemented his popularity downunder, while his latest single ‘Waves’ from his upcoming album ‘Critical As Water’ (March 16) has already racked up over a million streams on Spotify in just a few weeks.

“The first time we toured Australia we had no idea what to expect but five minutes into the first show we knew Aussie live music fans are maniacs like we are. The energy in that room was insane, and we’ve been looking forward to coming back ever since,” says Jeremy Loops.

“Getting to do Australia and New Zealand as part of this Critical As Water world tour shows just how important performing in this region is to us. And we know the love we give, Aussie and Kiwi crowds give will right back.”

The Australian and New Zealand shows are part of a massive global tour with 27 shows across ten countries, kicking off in March to celebrate the album’s release and winding its way through Europe, the UK, the US, Canada and finally Australia and New Zealand in May.

Loops’ cult-like following will continue to grow, with the new record Produced by Will Hicks (Ed Sheeran’s ‘Perfect’, Lilly Allen, Bastille), with additional production contributions by Jake Gosling (James Bay, The Libertines, Shawn Mendes). ‘Waves’ has already featured in Spotify’s international viral chart.

When he’s not touring the world, Jeremy Loops is also the founder of South Africa’s Greenpop, a tree planting organisation that’s been responsible for 85,000 new trees across his homeland. He is one of the biggest artists in the country with his debut record entering the South African charts at #1 and winning MTV South Africa’s Alternative Album of the Year and iTunes South Africa’s Album of the Year.

 

Don’t miss Jeremy Loops this May, live and intimate across Australia and New Zealand.
